Modbus TCP/IP to Siemens Industrial Ethernet Gateway


ProSoft Technology’s Modbus® TCP/IP to Siemens Industrial Ethernet gateway allows high-speed bi-directional data transfers between Modbus® TCP/IP controllers and Siemens® S7-400, S7-300, S7-200, S7-1200, and S7-1500 PACs.

In addition, the gateway includes several features, including data prioritization, that allow for simplified integration, reduced commissioning time and optimized performance.

Características y Beneficios

  • ProSoft Discovery Service utility allows your PC to see the gateway and edit its default IP address without being on the same subnet.
  • Supports up to 20 simultaneous client & server connections, allowing for faster communication between devices such as HMIs, SCADA systems, power monitors and flow computers, among others.
  • In addition to S7 controllers, the gateway can also be used with Siemens® S5 controllers with an appropriate interface.
  • Gateway includes a SD card slot (SD card optional) for storing configuration files. This can be used for disaster recovery.
  • Secure module configuration via module switch (v1.04 and greater).
  • Up to 4000 16-bit registers can be used to exchange large amounts of data.
